Personal Statement
My own personal teaching style is based on a combination of all the things Iíve gathered and learned from all my teachers, professors, mentors and heros, the workshops Iíve attended, clinics and research and readings Iíve sought out and books Iíve read. Iíve taken the best of Classical, Jazz, Folk and Ethnic teaching traditions and approaches and integrated ideas from Western Philosophy, Zen Buddisim, Tai Chi, Boxing, The Artistís Way, The Suzuki Method, Yoga, Martial Arts, Surfing and Visualization practices. In addition to building a strong technique and solid musical foundation for all my students, I put a special emphasis on developing the creative spirit, teaching people how to open up creatively (in all aspects of their lives), improvise, compose their own music, develop an artistic identity and become artists.
